bank of america, chase bank citibank, first america bank [speaker not understood]. their well served by these existing banks and other financial institutions in the district. in addition, the financial institution in this rather small few block long district would decrease the diversity of use in the district and limit other neighborhood serving uses in the neighborhood. this concern is the reason financial institutions require conditional use authorization in this district and the reason that a similar request for sterling bank in 2005 in this location was disapproved by the commission. and conditions in the neighborhood have not changed. last october the [speaker not understood] restaurant burned down. local merchants association and other groups used the restaurant as a meeting place. sterling bank has offered to allow merchants and others to use the 545 square foot rear portion in this space now occupied by the bank office as a community meeting room. the need for such a community meeting space will decrease when the [speaker not understood] is reconstructed. the department has r

freedom and nature foundation and improving the awareness of these activities throughout north america. in 2009 the association commission had polling firm to conduct a poll of the attitude of californians towards nudity. the margin of error is plus or minus 3%. question number five was "do you agree or disagree that you are personally offended by the non sexual nudity of others". the responses were as follows. strongly agree and somewhat agree and somewhat disagree 17%. strongly disagree 41-point 1% and as you can see many of the residents are not offended by the non sexual nudity of others. the results of this poll to our knowledge is the only empirical evidence on this towards the attitudes of nudity and which the proponents rely and the majority is offended by public nudity is not correct and if the choice before you and if you recommend this before the board of supervisors and act in accordance with the vast majority of the city's residents or the vocal minority. san francisco is a beacon of tolerance and intolerance is too common. do you want to make this great city like ot

the significant changes on the california montgomery street side for the bank of america where two or three or four atms look like a huge bill board rather than what they're supposed to be. i question that and i would like the department to find a small slot to investigate as to whether or not we need to amend or what these particular atm is can or should be. it speaks to alteration and architecture and it speaks to advertising which i think we normally look at under different rules. that's problem number one. on the positive side, i just came back from venice, italy where i had the good fortune to attend the 13th architectural [speaker not understood] which is an international event which occurs every two years and obviously one of the most spectacular cities in the world. what i want to talk about is not the travel experience, but what the united states did in response to the general heading of the [speaker not understood] common ground. in the past [speaker not understood] deals with architecture and focuses on the different countries. obviously the u.s. has obviously great contributions
will have dramatic impacts on big megaprojects, whether it's america's cup or park more said kind of project. that is also untrue because this doesn't really impact how one appeals an e-i-r. that will basically remain exactly the way it is now. this legislation primarily impacts cadex appeals, and to a lesser extent negative declaration appeals. there's been a concern expressed about fair argument versus substantial evidence and the use of that language. this language, the language that we've used, is taken exactly from the state's c-e-q-a statute itself, and there's no intent in this legislation to change the standard of appeal. and then there was a concern expressed that the public would be forced to file a c-e-q-a appeal before a project proposed is fully articulated by having to file your appeal shortly after the first entitlement. but if a project changes and if its scope no longer falls within the bounds of the original c-e-q-a determination, of course, there would have to be a new c-e-q-a determination triggering new appeal rights. and then finally there's been a concern that the legi
can watch appeals of problem projects the america's cup which legislation proposes to reduce to within 20 days of the first approval by any agency. three, and almost complete elimination of the opportunity for san francisco residents to appeal projects to the board of supervisors. and four, its potential illegality in changing from the fair standard to the substantial evidence. thank you so much. >>> commissioners, good afternoon. my name is tony getener. lame duck holiday legislation is presumptively suspect. more over, this proposed evidence is putting the cart before the horse. as a state legislature, we'll be taking up changes to c-e-q-a next year. it would be more logical to wait on those changes, including the filling of gaps in state law before proceeding here. while streamlining c-e-q-a may seem like an attractive concept, it is not so when in effect it is a trojan horse. as i understand it, for example, the public will be denied the right to a hearing before the full board of supervisors on the inadequacy of a new e-i-r if a project requires any approval action by the board. a
states of america, i think they are unnecessarily wide. to my knowledge, there was insufficient opportunity for residents to have input on the placement of these monstrous poles. so, please recommend to the board of supervisors that the san francisco planning commission disapproves this proposed legislation. i have my remarks in letter form. may i please give it to you? thank you. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon. my name is dr. espinola jackson and i'm here representing the black leadership rights of san francisco. i'd like to say i'm requesting that you reject wiener's project. you know, four of you i know, and we came here before this body many times talking about bayview hunters point and the shipyard. but because of politics, developments, you didn't listen. three of you listened and voted with us. the rest voted against us and we had to file an appeal because of c-e-q-a. and guess what? we won. because the job wasn't done the way it was supposed to be done. even now a supervisor can come before you and support an issue like in my community, and you know what you did? you r
